Campus growth has affected much more than just academics.
Over the past 15 years, UofL has built 26 new facilities during
a $256 million
athletic building boom.
At the beginning of this century,
UofL embarked on transforming
the area between Floyd Street and
Interstate 65 into Owsley Brown
Frazier Cardinal Park (first image).
Thanks in large part to the visionary team of its namesake, the
late Owsley Brown Frazier — who
helped raise more than $500 million
to support education in Kentucky
over a 40-year span — and Athletic
Director Tom Jurich, Cardinal Park
has pushed UofL to the forefront
of cutting-edge athletic facilities in

undergoing a $3.5 million expansion
and will be able to accommodate
2,500 people once finished.

Also completed in 2000, Trager

has been selected as the host site
for several events, including four

is home to the nationally prominent
UofL football team.
